Thanksgiving is a celebration that many foodies look forward
to. Take some of the stress out of your holiday food prep with these helpful
Fridge real estate is in high demand in November, so before
you start into the cooking, take all those jars of jam and bottles of ketchup
and put them in a cooler for storage, freeing up the refrigerator. Or if warm
foods are taking up too much space, use the cooler’s insulation as a warming
drawer. Just line it with aluminum foil to keep foods hot.
Mashed Potatoes in the Crock Pot
Free up room on the stove by slow-roasting the mashed
potatoes in a crock pot this year. Just add in some heavy cream to the potatoes
and turn the setting on low until it’s meal time.
Need some time savers? When you go to the grocery store,
check out the salad bar and pick up some ingredients that are already prepared
to help reduce time in the kitchen.
Another way to keep foods hot is to place the finished gravy
in a thermos until dinner. Just transfer it to a gravy boat when the meal
starts and it’ll be ready to go.
Overcook the turkey? Not a problem. Warm up some chicken broth
and pour it over the sliced turkey to revive the meat and add flavor.
We here at Ken Nelson Nissan want to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. Make sure to schedule your vehicle’s pre-winter service appointment before you embark on holiday travels.

The 2010 Nissan Murano was ranked even higher,
earning a USN Overall Score of 9.0 out of 10. This crossover boasts a

U.S. News & World Report recently announced its top 25
Best Commuter Cars for 2019. This list showcased sedans and SUVs with excellent
fuel economy, comfortable interiors, and affordable prices (all under $35,000).
Both the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Kicks received spots on the list, proving that
their efficient designs make them rewarding choices for a commuter vehicle.
The 2019 Rogue earned praise for its excellent fuel efficiency of 33 mpg on the highway, as well as its standard set of Nissan Safety Shield 360 features. Safety features on this model include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. U.S. News & World Report writer Joel Patel also commented, “When you’re commuting, the comfort-first nature of this SUV shines.”
The 2019 Kicks also received marks for its fuel-sipping powertrain. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine pairs with a continuously variable transmission to achieve 36 mpg on the highway and 33 mpg combined. The model’s interior amenities — like the Zero Gravity Seats, which are designed to help reduce fatigue by encouraging a more neutral posture when you’re behind the wheel— make even long drives more comfortable.
Celebrate these two models’ accolades when you stop by Ken Nelson Nissan to test-drive them for yourself.
